Franco's Latest
by Gen. Franco indicates a re-
turn of the Spanish Bourbon monarchy in the
event of a rebel victory, in the person of the
youthful Prince Juan, third son of Alfonso XIII.
Previously Gen. Franco's announced intention
was to establish a dictatorship in the form of
,a military rule over a corporate state modelled
after Fascist Italy, but with no place provided
for a King Victor Emmanuel. The new project,
then, appears to be a further emulation of the
Italian example, particularly in view of the
significant passing over of the legitimate ruler,
Alfonso, in favor of a younger and probably less
assertive one.
On the surface, the chief purpose of the move
seems to be the amelioration of a faction of the
rebel support which has turned increasingly cool
in recent months. According to the Infanta E-
lalie, Alfonso and his household advanced the
rebel cause $10,000,000 at the beginning of the
revolt, which was expected to last from two
weeks to a month. Naturally, as the autumn,
winter and spring went by with the Insurgent
army still immobilized in the mountains west of
Madrid's gates, the House of Bourbon, chafing
in its Austrian exile, more and more lost interest
in an unsuccessful cause, especially in view of
the continued silence of the rebel military com-
mand on the question of restoration. And as
the royal family grew sick of the war, desertions
and mutinies among the battle-weary monarchist
troops became rife. To staunch the disaffection
in his army, which has stemmed from a variety
of causes besides the monarchist discontent, has
assumed paramount proportions in Franco's
struggle, and the candidature of Prince Juan
appears to be a step toward partial solution of
the problem. Possibly the rebel leader also hopes
for fresh subsidies from the royal family, al-
though the reported state of the royal exchequer
tends soon to invalidate such an anticipation.
But a close examination of the language of
the interview in which the restoration plans were
made public discloses another motive, one of
tremendous significance. The monarchist return,
Franco states, would have to be under conditions
that would ensure the coming of the king "as
a peacemaker, and not in the ranks of the con-
querors." In other words, the heir of the Span-
ish Bourbons, with whom oppression and tyranny
are more familiarly associated than with any
other line of Europe's decadent royalty, is to
perform the task of binding up the nation's
wounds and reconciling the peasants and miners
defending the Republic with their Fascist broth-
ers who are attacking it. His office will doubt-
less be simplified by the reiterated orders of the
day and press releases of the rebel army in-

sisting upon absolute victory as the sine qua non
of peace.
Franco must think that the Spanish people
will submit to a return of the Bourbons as a
front for a Fascist dictatorship. Perhaps he ex-
pects to create an effect abroad-it is a fairly
well substantiated fac that England would not
be sorry to see some sort of compromise' peace
which would offer herself opportunity for exer-
cising influence in mediation, and which would
prevent Spain's becoming aligned too solidly with
either the Fascist or democratic fronts inEurope.
However it seems doubtful that foreign observers
will be any more easily fooled than will the
enemy at home. The announcement, whether
it signifies desperation of victory or heralds a
new influx of foreign allies, is probably doomed
to futility, as far as gaining sentiment for the
rebel cause goes.

As Others See It
Not Enough, Mr. Sopwith
(From St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
WHEN a skipper lifts his boat bodily out of
the sea, rakes her fore and aft, strips off
three, anyhow, more than two, tons of leaden
weight, then, with a pat on the back, tosses her
into the water, he has done, we should say,
about as much as a seafaring mortal can do.
That is what Admiral Sopwith did on his day
of meditation, but it wasn't quite enough. Per-
haps if "Mike" Vanderbilt, as they are now call-
ing him, had been satisfied to let well enough
alone, a different song would be ringing the
rafters of Newport. But not by indolence and
trusting to luck have the Irish licked the English
at sea ever since Caesar's triremes crossed the
Channel. Commodore Mike was every bit as
busy as Admiral Tbm. The Ranger was scraped,
scoured, polished and powdered, and away it
went, like a lithe gazelle, the swiftest flash of
silver that ever cut the blue.
But let us not under-estimate the English.
They may never be better than good seconds out
in the foam-capped green and gray mists of
the surly Atlantic, but they're still bearcats at
Modern Frankness For Mussolini
(From St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
FACTS are coming to light about Italy's war
with Ethiopia which show it to have been
not the last resort of a nation whose patience
had been sorely tried, as Rome steadfastly set
forth to the world, but a war of conquest that
had been deliberately plotted far in advance.
The disclosures admit of no dispute, since they
are made by the man actively in charge of prepa-
rations, Marshal De Bono, who has written a
book on the war. An introduction to the volume
by Mussolini himself gives the highest possible
warrant of authenticity. Harper's Magazine, in
its current issue, performs a service to public en-
lightenment by reprinting the parts of De Bono's
book containing the pertinent facts.
As far back as 1932, the Marshal says, Mus-
solini foresaw the possibility of war on Ethiopia.
De Bono was sent to East Africa to survey the
situation. By the fall of 1933, the issue had been
decided. "The Duce spoke to no one of the com-
ing operations in East Africa" De Bono writes;
"only he and I knew what was going to happen."
By Dec. 20, 1934, a plan of military actionhad
been drawn up. On Feb. 26, 1935, Mussolini
wrote: "In case the Negus shall have no intention
of attacking us, we ourselves must take the in-
Referring to diplomatic negotiations, Il Duce
wrote on May 18, 1935: "I have made it under-
stood that we shall not turn back at any price ...
It is absolutely indispensable not to alter the date
-October-which we have fixed for the begin-
ning of operations." On Oct. 3, 1935, the Italian
invasion of Ethiopia began.
While this plot was being hatched, Italy was
constantly protesting it was the victim of aggres-
sion, and avowing its intention to avert war if
at all possible. Every military step was ex-
plained as "self-defense." Italy's statement of
its case .to the League Council was presented
as "the demonstration of Italy's good will in
the face of Ethiopia, to whom Italy offered in
peace every possibility of evolution and co-opera-
tion." Rome protested to the League at last
that "the warlike and aggressive spirit of Ethi-
opia had succeeded in imposing war." These
diplomatic papers are an illuminating exhibi-
tion of hypocrisy when read today alongside De
Bono's statements.
That Italy siould no longer, seek to conceal
how it plotted to destroy an independent nation,
whose sovereignty it had pledged to uphold, in-
dicates the brazenness with which the aggres-
sor nations now conduct their pillage. No docu-
ments are necessary to inform the historian
about what Japan is doing today in North
China, but perhaps some day we shall-see an
equally frank admission of how Italy and Ger-
many planned to Collaborate with Gen Franco
in the conquest of Spain.

Most of you will remember Hal Kemp's ver-
sion of the number, "Ten Little Bottles." Well,
we have in our midst a genius, in a small way,
who has made a variation on this same theme,
but which we think emulates or even improves
upon the one done by Mr. Kemp. The author's
name is Charles Wesley Gustaffson, and he's
been featured in many of the University's broad-
casts this session. He has entitled his master-
piece, very approximately, "The Home Life of a
Fish," and this is the way it goes:
"I had twelve bottles of whiskey in my
cellar, and my wife told me to empty the
contents of each and every one down the
sink . . . 'or else.' So I said I would and pro-
ceeded with the unpleasant task.
I withdrew the cork from the first bottle,
and poured the contents down the sink, with
the exception of one glass which I drank.
I extracted the cork from the second bottle,
and did likewise, with the exception of one
glass which I drank.
I then withdrew the cork from the third
bottle, and emptied the good old booze down
the sink, except a glass which I drank.
I pulled the cork from the fourth bottle,
and poured the bottle down the glass which
I drank.
I pulled the bottle from the cork of the
next, and drank one sink of it, and poured

On The Level
THE ABSENT-MINDED professor joke which
was circulating the University of Toronto
campus a short while ago goes like this. It
seems that the aforementioned individual ar-
rived home one evening walking. His wife real-
izing that he had driven to the campus that
morning asked him where he had left the car.
"The car?" he said. "Did I take the car this
morning? Well that explains it."
"Explains what?" his wife inquired.
"Explains why the man who was riding with
me this morning looked so pleased when I
thanked him for the ride," he answered.

So as to be sure to cover the ground, we find

petent, and on all the grounds ever heard of."

Blood transfusions are not as bad as they
are cracked up to be. For those not familiar
with the U. of M. Hospital technique, the fol-
lowing is offered. A permit is first obtained
from the health service simply to find if there
is any reason in the prospective donor's past
history which should prevent him from the giv-
ing of blood. Second, one reports at the Hos-
pital information desk, telling them of his ob-
jective, at which time he is sent to a laboratory
where about five cc.'s of blood are taken. From
the specimen the laboratory then determines to
which of the four main types of blood, based en-
tirely on mixing properties of the blood, not the
"goodness or badness" as many are lead to be-
lieve, the donor's blood belongs. A part of this
specimen is also used to determine any diseases
of the blood, employing the famous Kahn test
devised by Dr. Kahn of our hospital and used
throughout the world. At the same time there
is a general physical examination to determine
any clinical evidence of blood. disease. If the
reports on these tests are favorable you are
then placed on the call list, i.e., you are to tell
the information desk where you can be reached
at all times so that when you are needed you may
be obtained with ease. Third, upon receiving a
call you then report to the doctor to whom you
are sent and he again takes a little of your blood.
This time you may be asked to wait right there
while the cells of your blood are mixed with
the serum of the patient's blood, and the cells of
the patient's blood are mixed with the serum of
your blood. These major and minor crosses are
then watched for a while under a microscope to
see if any agglutination takes place. The orig-
inal separation of the cells and the serum is
accomplished by the means of centrifuge. If
the agglutination should take place, your blood
cannot be used as it would impede circulation
and cause death. The type of blood of the pa-
tient and the donor should be the same as a
general rule. Fourth, if no agglutination takes
place then the donor is taken to a room and
told to stretch out on a high cot, there being
an arm board on the edge on which he places his
arm, palm upward. A pneumatic tourniquet is
then placed on the upper part of the arm and
pumped up to a given pressure, this to aid the
donor in pumping out the blood, the donor do-
ing this himself by the opening and closing of
his hand at slow and regular intervals. The
blood is given out through a needle which has
been placed in the vein. (As veins are usually
on the outside of the arm, i.e., lay close to the
skin). From this needle a tube leads to a meas-
uring jar which also contains a little citrate to
keep the blood from coagulating. On top of the
jar is usually a connection to a suction pump
which also aids the donor in the releasing of
his blood. The actual giving of the blood takes
rarely over five or six minutes, is not painful and
has little more than psychological effect on the
donor. It may lower the blood pressure slightly
for a while but this may be compensated for by
the drinking of water to quite an extent both be-
fore and after the transfusion. All of us who
are in normal health have red corpuscles to

It is a great service that is rendered by these
donors and one which is a necessary activity
of a great hospital or a small one. The donors
are fairly well paid for their efforts and real
friends may bemade over a period of years while
acting as a donor at the hospital. It is also
an activity which affords the layman some idea
of the efficiency of the work being done by our
hospitals of today. Also to enter into the activ-
ities of a great institution such as ours is an
eperience of no mean value.
Probably the most comfortable class in the
University this summer is Surveying Four. It
seems that the stolid members of said class from
time to time have a case of beer sent out to a
cache in "their" field back of Mosher-Jordan.
This being a welcome diversion at the end of
the "line." But to prevent any stampeding in
that direction there is no more, and there *on't
be any more. (?) The query is though, do they
serve pretzels with the beer and how do they
keep it cool?
